An eight-part animated portrait of various species, accompanied by a different style of music. The various parts are: Aquatilia (foxtrot), Hexapoda (bolero), Pisces (blues), Reptilia (tarantella), Aves (tango), Mammalia (minuet), Simiae (polka) and Homo (waltz). Each animation mixes drawings, pictures, real animals and animated skeletons.Written by

this animated short is consists of 8 brief segments,each dealing with a different species,each set with its own style of music.each segment has animated shapes that corresponding to the the specific species.these shapes evolve and change within themselves,creating different patterns.at the end of each segment,we see a man eating a piece of food.like the previous reviewer,I'm not sure what that part's about.anyway,visually, i thought this piece was pretty interesting.it's very colourful,and the transitions from one pattern into another were done well.the actual point of the piece,I'm not exactly sure of.but maybe there isn't one.i probably didn't do a very good job of describing what the film was about.it's pretty late in the morning here and i'm half asleep.i do know that it didn't quite do it for me.i give Historia Naturae, Suita a 5/10
